Homer Bailey Throws First Reds No-Hitter Since 1988S

Homer Bailey threw this season's seventh no-hitter in shutting down the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight 1-0 in what was the first no-no ever thrown at PNC Park.

Bailey allowed only a walk (another batter reached base on a Scott Rolen error) and struck out ten in the Reds' first no-hitter since Tom Browning pitched a perfect game against the Dodgers in 1988. It was only the third time the Pirates had been no-hit since 1898 and the first since Bob Gibson held them hitless August 14, 1971. [FS Ohio/WLW]
